Be My Frugal Valentine!

Since Ashleigh and her classmates are sweet enough, we decided to go the no candy route for Valentine's Day treats! We made batches of homemade play dough, colored pink using a strawberry gelatin packet. Rolled into individual size portions, we placed them in heart-themed treat bags and tied the gift tags on with glittery, curly ribbon left over from Christmas. I also added a section of red, transparent cellophane gift wrap to the tops of the treat bags for added volume and flare. We'll place the finished packets in the cute, little Valentine's cups I found on sale at Walgreens.

I love getting crafty and creative with my best-est little girl :)
